UC Berkeley Extension Touts New Health Informatics Program

On Monday,UC Berkeley Extension announced the launch of the fully online Professional Program in Health Informatics, a four-course sequence that prepares clinical and nonclinical professionals to understand and deploy health informatics.

So how does it work?

By understanding the underlying information and computer science and health care best practices that comprise this in-demand career, professionals from both medical and IT backgrounds will have the skills—in as little as three months—to meet the growing use of technology in health care delivery.

“The rapidly changing healthcare environment offers many new opportunities in health informatics, but also requires workers to continue to build skills over time as industry and organizational needs change,” says lead instructor Melanie Meyer. “This Professional Program in Health Informatics will help working professionals build new skills in these critical areas.”

“This is exactly what UC Berkeley Extension excels at,” adds UC Berkeley Extension Director of Behavioral Health Sciences Stan Weisner. “We develop and offer up-to-date curricula in a range of health, business and related technology fields to prepare students for real jobs so that they can compete in a dynamic workforce environment.”
